This is exactly what the Final Phase Fat Loss program by John Romaniello is about: helping you to reignite the fat burning process and melt away the last few pounds. (to read an interview I did with John Romaniello, go to John Romaniello interview)
The reason why losing the last pounds is so hard is that your body doesn’t really want to get so lean. In fact, in the time of our ancestors, people with low body fat were the first to die in times of hunger.
Today, this isn’t a problem since food is plentiful, but evolution has made our body try to cling to some fat, which is why it’s so hard to lose the last of it. The other problem is that you find it easier to lose fat from some body parts than from others. This is the ‘easy fat’. Your trouble spots have the ‘hard fat’. To lose the ‘hard fat’ you need something a bit different from regular weight loss plans.
John Romaniello claims that he can help you do just that. You can download a free report in which he explains the fundamentals of this program.
Let’s see what this program is all about…
Hormonal reasons for trouble spots
Once you drop the ‘easy fat’ you need to figure out why you still have trouble spots. The reason is likely hormonal. Your hormonal balance determines which body parts will have more fat on them.
Here are some examples:
- If your trouble spots are the love handles and lower back than you’re likely insulin resistant.
- If you have a lot of belly fat, then you must have a lot of cortisol.
- If you’re a guy with a lot of lower body fat and/or chest fat you likely have a lot of estrogen in your body.
The way the Final Phase Fat Loss workouts are arranged is that they help you to deal with those problematic hormones and target the stubborn fat on your trouble spots. This is precisely what you need to lose the last pounds of fat.
What is Final Phase Fat Loss
Final Phase Fat Loss is a 6 week training program with 16 different workouts. This program is mostly for people who are already in some kind of weight loss process but need something extra to shed off those nasty stubborn pounds.
Each week you will do 4 workouts. Each of the workouts target a different element of why the body clings to those last pounds of fat and how you can work to get rid of them. A special emphasis is placed on dealing with those troublesome hormones as I’ve discussed.
Here are the 4 workout styles:
Lactic Acid training with slow tempos to produce a tremendous amount of lactic acid, which will in turn elicit the release of lots of growth hormone. Excellent for fat loss, and even has a positive effect on insulin management.
Dynamic Workouts – These are pretty standard fast paced training workout, focusing on dynamic exercises like lunges and step ups. You’re probably very familiar with stuff like this, it’s just some of the exercises that may be a bit new.
Density Training – the focus of density training is to increase workout density, work capacity, training economy and overall awesomeness. What we do here is perform exercises for TIME. The first set establishes a baseline, and with the second set we increase the weight and try to beat the reps from the previous set. It’s tremendous for fat loss and gaining strength and strength endurance.
Heavy Strength – heavy weight to keep strength up, as well as increase neurogenic and myogenic muscle tone. Rather than straight up set/rep schemes, I’ve assigned a goal number of reps, broken into the fewest number of sets possible. So just do 25 squats in as few sets as you can, with heavy weight. Stuff like that. The key is to get people to focus on form and speed, rather than getting caught up in numbers. The goal of these workouts is not to really get stronger, but to help retain strength and muscle tissue while dieting.
